Kurt switches on the AQSYS hack, giving the Cube Hunters control of hundreds of tiny aerial sensors above the city. As they track the four pieces of tagged equipment around town, he updates his blog to give everyone an idea of the bigger picture.
He, Violet, Caine and Karen are each trying to follow one part by car. Three parts end up at Grand Frederik's station, but the fourth (followed by Caine) suddenly heads south. Caine crashes his car - he's fine - but loses track of the delivery, which vanishes off the radar.
AQSYS is now activated - visit the control page here. See my previous post below for details on how it all works.
Sorry I wasn't able to do the 5:15pm update - there was a minor crisis with Caine's car and we had to run over to the Engineering guys to sort it out. It doesn't matter anyway, I didn't have much to add.
I've hired a car that I'm going to use to try and shadow the parts on the ground. Since thankfully it's self-driving, I should be able to post updates here during the tracking.
Update 5:52pm: The messages we're receiving are pretty confused, but it seems like you're reporting that parts are west or northwest of Polygon Park. All of us on the ground are circling the area in our cars.
Update 6:04pm: I'm in the northwest, north of the Artist's Quarter, on Fivebridges. Caine and Violet were north of Polygon Park, heading east, last I heard. Karen is on Sweborg.
Update 6:19pm: Karen and I are around Azad Park - there seem to be a couple of parts around here. Violet's at Lang Stadium, Caine is north of Open Manifold. Just heard from Anna - she's managed to get out of work early and is heading home to monitor things online.
Update 6:32pm: I'm in the area around the Shift, Karen's now south of Azad. Caine's heading east towards Magine, not sure where Violet is.
Update 6:40pm: Circling around the area by Grand Frederik's, on the east end of Magine. Violet and Karen are nearby, Caine is following a sighting south, down Sharp Avenue.
Update 6:50pm: Seems like three of the parts have now entered Grand Frederik's and are being shielded - they've probably been loaded onto a train. The fourth part was last seen in the Old Town by the Brotherhood of the Six temple, and then it disappeared as well - that's probably the part that the Third Power wanted. Caine was heading down Sharp Avenue following it when he crashed, as usual. He's on foot now, heading towards it. Anna just called in to say that Fleming is due back from work pretty soon, so she might be able to check out the last sighting as well - she lives in the Old Town.
